so. For Elohim made the two great luminous bodies,- the greater luminary to rule the day, the lesser luminary together with the
stars to rule the night. Elohim set them in the expanse of the
heavens to shed illumination upon earth,- to rule the day and
the night, separating the illumination from the darkness. Elohimbeheld that it was beautiful! And the dusk and the dawn werethe fourth day.
Then Elohim said, “Let the waters teem with a living activemass, - and let birds fly over the earth in the face of the expanseof the sky”.
So Elohim created the great sea-monsters and every livingcreature that moves, according to species, with which thewaters teem. And also every winged bird to species. Elohimbeheld that it was beautiful!
Elohim blessed them, “Be fruitful”, He said, “Multiply and fill the
waters of the sea. Let the birds of the earth proliferate”. And the
dawn and the dusk were the fifth day.
Then Elohim said, “Let the earth bring forth living creaturesaccording to species, - animals, creeping things, and wild beastof the earth to species”. And it was so. Elohim made all the wild
beasts of the earth to species, and animals to species, andevery creeping thing of the soil to species. Elohim beheld that it
was beautiful! Then Elohim (El-o-heem) said, “Let Us make man
in Our own likeness, - to Our similitude, to subjugate(govern)
the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, all the animals of theearth, and all the creeping things that crawl the earth”.
So Elohim created man in His own likeness, in the likeness of Elohim He formed him, both male and female, He created both.
And Elohim blessed them, - Elohim told them, “Be fruitful,multiply, fill the earth and subjugate(govern)it, be masters to
the fish in the sea, the birds of the sky, and all life that movesupon the earth”. Elohim also said, “See, I give you all the plants
that bear seed that are on the countenance of the earth andevery tree that has fruit which disseminates seed,- that will be
your food. To every wild beast on earth, to every bird of the sky,and to every living creature that crawls upon the earth, - I giveall the green growth for food”. And it was so. Elohim beheld all
that He had made, and lo! - it was all very beautiful! And thedusk and the dawn were the sixth day.
